It’s has been awhile since I have written a Leon the Horrible Boy, so I’d like to give you a flashback on what you read last time:
” ‘ The only questions you got wrong were the Prime and Composite numbers. Next time, you should study that better.’
‘ You got it. ‘ And that’s exactly what he did”
So now that you got a flash from the past, let’s go straight into the story!
It’s been 2 months since the first math test he got 90% on, but that doesn’t mean that he is not just as horrible as he was. There was half a month of school left, and some kid’s in his class (including the teacher ) didn’t know if they can last half a month with him.
Leon was studying for his exam on mammal’s, and for the record, it was quite… BORING! It was the last test of the year, so he thought, why not just don’t study for one little test? What’s the worst that can happen? Since Leon did horrible the months before he got 90% on the math test. So right now his average was pretty low. And his mom had told him to get at least 85% on a test. Luckily, he had studied enough not to get summer school. But his mom was not satisfied when she got the test on mammals back.
” 80% PERCENT! I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO STUDY! ” She yelled so loud, Leon thought the whole house shook.
” I know, but at least I didn’t in Summer School. ” Leon added, ” I also passed the grade. ”
” Ok, fine, but that’s the least of my problem’s. I have something important to tell you. We are moving. ” When his mom said that, she thought Leon was going to look like he was going to barf, but instead he looked sort of relieved. She thought, ‘ Maybe he wasn’t a good kid in school because the other kids hated him.
” Where we moving to? “
” To another apartment building. I think our apartment is 3h. Our neighbor is Mrs Benson,” Leon’s mom replied.
” Does she have any kids, or is she lonely?”
” Well, she doe-“
Leon interrupted, ” Does she make cookies? You know I love cookies.”
Leon’s mother said, ” I don’t know, I haven’t-“
Leon again interrupted ” When will we meet them?”
“Hold on! One question at a time! She has a son who’s his name is Harold, and he is your age and he’s in your grade. She does make cookies, and I was thinking of going to meet them and see our new house today. How does that sound?”
” It sounds great. One more question: When are we going to move in?”
” I was thinking of packing tomorrow and moving in by next week. We might be able to move in by next week Monday. So go get ready to meet our new neighbors” So Leon went to his room and got dressed. He was actually pretty excited to meet the new kid. When he got down stairs, his mom was surprised to see him dressed in a suit. He didn’t notice until he finished putting on his tie.
” Leon, what are you wearing?” Leon looked at his clothing then his mom.
” What do you mean? Does it look bad? To formal?”
” No, its just… not like you normally dress. I thought you were going to wear a tee shirt with shorts. That’s what you usually wear.”
“Oh… I just thought since are going to meet some new people who are going to be our neighbors for awhile, I might as well make a good first impression.”
“Okay. I guess since you are wearing something fancy I should go put on one of my dresses,” and she went in her room to put on one of her blue fancy dresses while Leon made himself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or what he liked to call it, a PB and J.
15 minutes later…
” Come on Leon, get in the car! You’re always the last one out! I told them we would be there 5 minutes ago, and by the time we get there we are going to be HALF AN HOUR LATE! GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!”
” COMING,” Leon yelled so he could make the point. He got in the front seat with his mom and they started going to their new home.
———————————————————-“Sorry we are late Mrs. Benson. We had a little… traffic on the way,” she said looking at Leon, who rolled his eyes.
“So,” Mrs. Benson said, ” would you like some tea? Leon could go stay with Harold. Harold! Harold? He might be in his room. Third door on your left. So Leon slowly walked to the boys door and tapped on his shoulder…
